    Alexsons sketchbook (of doom)

    This is my sketchbook. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My sketchbook is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My sketchbook, without me, is useless. Without my sketchbook, I am useless.


    First image is for the thread's thumbnail.

    Great work! My favorite is the toad from the first post. Really great job depicting his skin, and I love the colors. Love the mech too! I really struggle with those types of things...

    I think your portraits are looking good. If I can recommend something....it would be to watch out for "black shadows". Also, your shadows seem very dark, very extreme. Do you use black when painting? I would try to stay away from that if possible.

    Post more!!! =)

    clockworksnail: Thanks man! I think I bought my first wacom maybe 2 years ago and started playing around with it, it was a crappy small one but about a year ago I bought a wacom intuos2 wich is awesome.

    IndigoSummers: Thanks alot! I guess you are right about the shadows. Also I think my monitor is a bit brighter than nomal, my stuff usually looks a bit darker on other monitors. I'll have to check that out.

    Yesterday I got started with Digital Painting with Bobby Chiu over on schoolism.com. I have the self study version so I won't get personal critique after every assignment, I chose that due to some money shortage but also there weren't any open spots until January next year.
    Anyway I started on the first class assignment which is black and white values. Original art by Bobby Chiu!

    Tried to color that last one, did black and white first then tried to apply some color with overlay etc. but it came out looking like pure ass crack. every time I try to use that technique it comes out all messy.

    A lot of updates, and they are looking good. That's great! If you haven't tried it already, try www.posemaniacs.com for figure drawing (the 30 second drawing in there). It's really great for learning to see and how to record the seen stuff as quickly as possible.

    Keep it up man!

    karantina: Thank you very much!

    I did this one with no ref. to practice color, but I don't think it's anatomically correct. Knees and legs are my biggest problem atm. I think, I'm gonna start doing some studies.

    Hey nice improvement in here man, i'm envious of your sketching skills in digital, your rendering is coming along really nicely too! - Keep this up and I'm sure you'll be working for that company of your dreams - don't worry you'll get there, at least you know what you want now!! I waited til waayyy too late to decide^^

    Go Daggers!

    How's Schoolism treating you?

    Bobby Chiu is a big inspiration for me and it's nice to see his influence spreading.

    Nice work and great improvements. Remember that skin isn't just one color. It has yellows, greens, reds, and blues all working together to produce a translucent surface.

    Keep at it, good luck!

    no87 Thanks man! Ye I agree theres a lot wrong with that one. As soon as I post stuff, I see 100 things to change

    AlexTooth: Thanks dude I've been sketching with my tablet for 3 years or so now but I just started painting with it. Working on my rendering n' shit a lot nowadays.

    DeeLock: Tack så mycket! (thank you very much!) I did Photoshop basics with bobby chiu and I learned tons from it. Like layer masks and adjustment layers and stuff which I had no clue of before but now I use it quite frequently. And he also showed some brief color theory and composition and other goodies. I would recommend it for someone that is rather new to PSP.
    I would think doing some master studies would better my color sens and stuff? I've never done one before but I will.

    Here is some from today. My life paintings is still pretty dull, I slacked off with the fabric. And a very crappy enironment

    Yay, you're still updating like hell. Love it! I really like the value study in post #22 and also the last still life. You'll improve really fast if you keep this tempo!

    Btw, jag har äntligen uppdaterat min SB, så ta gärna en titt om du har tid och lust. Kritik/tips mottages gärna.

    Ain't those studies in your post #34
    from some Serbian movie? They look so familiar to me.
    Your face studies and life paintings are killing good, I
    am going through your sketchbook page by page, and I
    am writing this short review in parallel.
    Post #58 - Anthony J. Ryder Study - more than beautiful,
    I would like to learn to render skin like you did there.
    It is too obvious that you are a true virtuoso at face
    paintings, I have nothing to criticize, maybe I would just like to
    ask you to visit my book again, and give me some advices about skin
    rendering, which brushes should I use or whatever you think that is
    useful for me to know. I would really appreciate that.
    Looking through all your work, it seems that I did not visited it before,
    but even if I did, I have forgot about it. Some of your works are familiar,
    most probably from the character of the week contests. I am not sure what
    to say, what advice to give you, maybe you should do more graphite pencil
    drawings, cause as I gone through your work I did not seen any graphite
    outrendered pieces. However, it is not a must, some artists just do not
    work with graphite pencils much and they are a real masters, when digital
    comes in question. To cut the long story short, I definitely like what I saw
    here in your book, and you are an artist who surely can serve as a real
    motivation to others. I see that you are really active, so I would like to
    work in a harmony with you. I will try to follow your work from now on, and
    to encourage you from time to time. Remember, together we are much stronger.
    For now, I wish you a happy new year, and a lot of happy drawing and
    painting hours all through the season.
    Cheers mate.

    snatti - Thanks! I've done some like that when doing concept art, but I very much prefer doing straight color when I do illustrations and whatnot. Tough I should practice it more, it is always good to be able to do paintings in as many ways as possible to break monotony.
    [ste] - Thanks bro!
    NickyBeats - Haha! The client wanted a pretty classic pinup so I crammed in all the typical stuff, skimpy armor that has no real purpose, T&A and a bigass weapon
    Kungfoowiz - Thanks alot, pal!
    Allan-p - Thank you, you def. have a point about that. I'll surely check out that dude thanks!
    LtPlissken - Thank you very much for the kind words, really boosted my morale. I hope we can share information and cooking recipes whenever you or I needs 'em!

    Here is some skintone studies. Done from a amazing 3D model by a guy I came across on CGHub, sorry I lost the link to his profile.
